Spar Scotland has donated £1,000 between four foodbanks after a social media competition.

The symbol group’s Facebook and Instagram followers were asked to nominate a local foodbank to receive £250 in Spar Scotland vouchers.

Paula Middleton, Spar Scotland Marketing Manager, explained: “We wanted to support those organisations who are looking out for others when times are tough.”

More than 230 nominations were received; the four winners picked at random were Thornton Community Food Support, EBI Unites, Wee Mobile Foodbank Lanarkshire, and Dalbeattie Foodbank.

“We are delighted these four organisations will benefit from the vouchers,” Middleton added.

In 2022 Spar Scotland hit a milestone of more than £1m donated to local and national community-based initiatives and charities since 2013.

Applications are currently open for Spar’s £100k Community Cashback, where shoppers from all over the UK can apply for an organisation or charity to receive a share of the giant jackpot to support their activities. Entries can be made until 15 March.
